We can observe fish breeding behavior in this season.
Now, many Jawfish protect their eggs in their mouth.

But, Jawfish was eating some food toady…

Sometimes, they jump out from their home.
When they jump out, we can see all of their body.
The case is rare.

We can see this scene in this season only.

The activity of goby is getting more and more.

We usually go to the goby area in summer season.
But, many goby stay out of the home in this year.
It looks like we’ll be seeing a lot of gobies this year.

Have you ever seen this fish??

The shape is strange.
The fish walk on the sand with using their fins.

The shape and behavior is so interesting !!!

Others, there are so many kinds of macro creatures in Kushimoto area.

The water temperature is still 18 degree, but we can enjoy diving so much!!!
